Tensions in open innovation systems, honey bee network perspective akg 2014


Published on

why is open innovation philosophy becoming so important for public and private organizations? what are the lessons from honey bee network which was perhaps the first voice for open innovations twenty five years ago. How to make most O I platforms more symmetrical? why dont corporations realise that without sufficient reciprocity, they might kill the golden goose? how do we learn from creativity of children( ignite@nifindia.org) , tech students ( techpedia.in), informal sector ( nifindia.org and sristi.org , gian.org) and other streams of society. volunteers are welcome to contact and join the HBN info@sristi.org or anilg@sristi.org anilgb@gmail.com

Tensions in open innovation systems, honey bee network perspective akg 2014

  1. 1. • anil gupta, IIMA, sristi.org • Honey Bee Network and NIF • anilgb@gmail.com Minds on the margin are not marginal minds Building Bridges across Boundaries: emerging tensions in open innovation platforms
  2. 2. Ethical fulcrum of empathy? Where are the fertile grounds for sprouting seeds of empathic innovations? Samvedana ke sanskar:
  3. 3. Should we open the door ? How much, for whom
  4. 4. Technology is like words, institutions are like grammar and culture is like thesaurus Three pillars of sustainability How to build the bridge? Who can/will build the bridge?
  5. 5. Honey Bee Network founded in 1987-1988 A nameless, faceless innovator or traditional knowledge holder comes into contact with the Network and gets an identity, voice, visibility and viability of its sustainable vision .

  8. 8. Without tensions, resonance is not possible How much tension should there be in the strings of sitar? Tensions manifest vulnerabilities of the system Vulenrabilities bring us closer to ourselves to face the truth Open innovations require acceptng the truth that not all good ideas come from with in the system
  9. 9. Five tensions: a)Autonomy and agency b)Accuracy versus affordability c)Blue print versus autopoiesis (blended, bundled and bridged innovations) d)Institution led -user adopted to user-created or co- created and corporate adopted-reverse innovation e)Symmetrical versus asymmetrical open innovation models f)Long tail versus long nose, g)scale versus sustainability
  10. 10. Five potentials : a)seek solutions for future unmet needs from with in the company or outside b)Do we serve these needs through existing heuristics or discover new frugal heuristics c)Should ethics be leveraged through efficiency, empathy and excellence or through exclusion? d)How do we harness the creativity at grassroots, through buyout or through partnership or third parties? e)Can David beat the Goliath through subterfuge or innovation?
  11. 11. Transformation is possible : Story of five transformations a)New Chemistry of sustainability equation: circular economy: b)From market led to market disruption: new forms of alliances: TATA agrico and a small innovator, BUHLER, ST Microelectronics, TATA Steel, TATA Chemicals, Yuvan Longlife, c) Frugal, friendly, flexible and futuristic heuristics d) New models of learning from below: inverted model of innovation-children invent, engg fabricate, companies commercialise e) New models of financing and co-creation – techpedia.in,
  12. 12. Dimensions of Inclusion –Spaces –Sectors –Seasons: stable to fluctuating –Social segments –Skills and knowledge Inclusive Innovation
  13. 13. Long tail of innovation (only a few innovations achieve scale, a large number sell a few pieces or in a few communities) Long nose of innovation: Take long time to come into market Room for maneuver
  14. 14. Extreme affordability •Less material •Local material •Repairable features •Upgradable features •Aspirational connect •Sticking to essentials •
  15. 15. Affordable Accessible available high low H L h L Assumption is that products or services are known, people are aware, but can they afford these, access these and if can access, can they avail them,
  16. 16. Material Old new method Old New Use or applications old New Innovation: at least one of the three dimensions should be New
  17. 17. Frugality Imperatives Material: frugality in quantity, replacement, maintenance, waste recycling Method: distributed, concentrated, iterative versus blue print, self- correcting, local repaired or repaired from outside, or blended Application: low end, high end, diversified or specialized locally modifieable or only experts can fix or make, robust versus sophisticated application, makeshift or permanent,
  18. 18. Frugality is flexible Frugality is friendly Frugality is extremely affordable •Value chain redesign, • reciprocal open innovation platform Circular Economy
  19. 19. Learning platforms from concrete to abstract 1) Artefactual - replication of similar design 2) Analogic - metaphor to inspire 3) Heuristic - models of thinking 4) Gestalt - configurational of factors Gupta, 2012, Own compilation Four levels of learning

  69. 69. Marine Inboard diesel engine and Z Drive Innovator: B. Mohanlal, Aleppey, Kerala Manually tillable Z-drive systemReversible reduction gearbox To go along with gear box for diesel engine, manually operated Z drive system is developed, which is manually tiltable and can be locked at 90 degrees while landing. It also has reduced the loss of power through horizontal shaft power transmission and result in smooth drive and better maneuverability. The diesel engine directly couples with two reduction gears through flange coupling with engine flywheel. The innovativeness lies in the application of helical gears with inner spline cut with dual sided jaw and dog clutch. This provides the smooth running and better power transmission for the marine diesel engine. NIF signed MoU with Matsyafed Matsyafed gave an order of 100 machine sets – order value of about INR 68 Lakh.
